Boris Johnson: The six million pound man

Season 1, Ep. 194

This is the story of a politician incapable of living within his means but talented beyond measure at finding people to help him live beyond them. It’s the story of how that dependence on others sullied him and them. All of which leads to one simple question: just who is funding Boris Johnson?

This is the first episode of a four part series investigating Boris' finances.
